Compatible Flat Towing Equipment For A 1999 Jeep Wrangler


Will this base plate be compatible with my 5350 tow bar when towing a 1999 Jeep Wrangler? Thanks!!


Expert Reply:

Yes, the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-521424-5 will be compatible with both your 1999 Jeep Wrangler and your Roadmaster tow bar. To flat tow your 1999 Jeep Wrangler you'll also need a tow bar wiring kit, braking system, and safety cables. I have the following recommendations for you below:

Tow Bar Wiring Kit: Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267. This diode kit allows you to use your Jeep Wrangler's tail lights and wiring system while preventing feedback from your RV. It comes with everything you need including a 7-wire to 6-wire Flexo-Coil electrical cord.

Braking system: Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System # HM39524. This system offers intense, emergency braking or steady, smooth braking in a single portable system. Easily switch between proportional or full braking from your RV using the remote. The included charge line kit will prevent your vehicle's battery from draining while you tow.

Since your turn signal lighting is combined you'll also need the Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit for Towed Vehicles # RM-88400 to prevent your car's brake signal from overriding the turn signal that comes from your RV.

Safety Cables: RoadMaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables - 6,000lbs # RM-643. The coiled design of these cables will help prevent them from dragging on the ground and being damaged.
